1998 GMC Envoy 4dr SUV 4WD


My Envoy just burned up -- fuel leak. Previously had transmission problem (went dry), but it was covered out-of- warranty because the dealer had just serviced it, and they probably didn't fill it right or left the plug loose. Right headlight went out 3 years ago. Two part light, $375 per part but not sold seperately. Got a junk yard (only one of two in the country at the time) for $500 plus an hour of labor. GM did not help, dealer or corporate. When burned, the left headlight was out, not available in junkyards at the time. I also lost the third brakelight, costing ~$500 and not properly repaired.

Best Features

Trailer hitch

Worst Features

Fire the engineer who designs expensive lighting system that are incompatable with GMC Jimmys and Chevy Blazers, which are changed for the subsequent year, without adequate supplies, no aftermarket solution, no corp help. Maybe he's now the CEO or in charge of employee benefits and pensions.
